Actually they are good to 1.2 jigawatts, but that extra .1 jigawatt was just too much.

I have the theory that if it would have boom struck @ precisely 2807rpm at the time of the energy release, it would have made it to the future and back, creating a time warp, and Al Gore would be president.

thank goodness for that powerline...

This act of complete idiocy is exactly why there needs to be some sort of experience level established before enabling someone to buy something beyond their experience level. Sickens me to see someone so stupid with no regard to safety or standards.

This video brings back some bad memories for me. I was flying a brand new, high power Trex 700e at my old club outside of Nashville when something snapped and I lost control. The heli made a bee-line and crashed into a transformer on a power pole. It was an amazing sight. My Trex looked like the one in this video, but not quite as bad. My nickname for a long time was The Transformer.

I was Spektrum when Spektrum wasn't cool
